You Are My Favorite

Hello Everyone!!  I wanted to share a card I made using products from Simon Says Stamp.  I've been dying to use the Tropical Leaves stamp set.  This set has been on my wishlist for a long time so when Simon had a 30% off sale, I just HAD to order it!!

My new obsession lately is using my Tombow markers with solid image stamps.  The results are amazing!!  You actually feel like an artist!  I've tried this watercolor technique in the past using my Distress Ink mini ink cubes with not great results.  You always have to "stamp off" because the ink is so intense...and that's too much work :)




I simply swiped the edge of the brush tip across the stamp, sometimes adding a second color, then huffed on it lightly to moisten the ink.  The stamped image comes out quite light but once you add the water, it looks beautiful.


After the panel was done, I used the largest of the Stitched Rectangles to trim it down.  I didn't want to cover all the prettiness that I had achieved, so instead of stamping a sentiment I used the You Are My Favorite die.  I added the panel with foam adhesive onto a cardbase using Hero Art Layering Paper called Floral.


To finish off I scattered some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I really like how this turned out and I hope you do too!!  Thank you for taking the time to stop by!!

Laurie
